DAMMIT. (Also, ba-dum-bum.) I saw the crash yesterday but hadn't heard that it actually took out anybody - much less my man. That's a total bummer.
I'm not a huge fan of the tour, but I'm surprised no one is talking about it here this year. Seems like it always comes up, at least in passing.
I was going to update the Americans on the rest day but didn't get my round tuit. It's been borrrrrrrrrrrrring thus far, but I expect it to pick up soon.
Armstrong is in third at the moment.
I don't WANT to root for Lance. I guess I can root for Christian Vande Velde for now, and hop on the Lance bandwagon later...if I have to...
I just don't know if Alberto Contador is down with Lance getting the yellow jersey. When/if Astana explodes may be the highlight storyline-wise of this Tour. Levi out surely changed that dynamic, though.
I wonder if Tyler Farrar will win a stage? He sure looked good finishing JUST second a few days ago.
The scores seem about right, they could have been lower with the point deduction and still have been OK. The point deduction itself seemed harsh, since Hatton didn't actually hit Mayweather, he got the top rope.
